Deloitte Consulting today announced a deal with Viador Inc. under which the consulting firm will offer Viador's E-Portal Suite as its preferred enterprise portal technology for E-business projects within Global 1,000 corporations.
Deloitte Consulting and Viador will also jointly develop industry-specific technology that will incorporate Viador's software into the consulting company's "solution centers." Those centers are used by Deloitte and its clients to develop and test custom E-business systems. The E-Portal Suite, Viador's flagship product, provides a means for users to search, analyze, and distribute information via the Web--even if it is located in heterogeneous data sources.
Viador expects that the relationship will let it expand its customer base in key vertical industries such as financial services, manufacturing, and consumer products. Financial details of the partnership were not disclosed.
